Girl’s cricket does not have as much exposure as boy’s cricket in the country but more and more girls are taking part as the format continues to grow. The Girls U19 week is the only platform that school girls have to showcase their talents and to make a name for themselves. Girl’s cricket has steadily gained moment in awareness and backing since around 1995, which was when it all officially started. These days girl play quality cricket and can even give boy’s a run for their money. Many of the ladies that play for the Women Proteas all started their cricketing careers at this week. The aim of the week is to give the girls exposure to a cutthroat cricketing environment and to allow them to work on their batting, fielding and bowling skills.
